Robertin is the second commit from the class, joining point guard Ty Hudson. The two man class is ranked 47th in the country according to the 247 Composite.
Legend Robertin went to Believe Prep Academy in Rock Hill, SC prior to attending Chipotla JUCO in Florida. He will have three years of eligibility. Landry Nnoko will be a senior when Robertin joins the team. His second year on the team will technically be his junior year and he figures to compete with a senior Sidy Djitte for the starting job then.
We had previously noted that the program's momentum on the recruiting trail had been showing progress as evidenced by last year's class that featured four-star Donte Grantham and the Charlotte Observer's NC Player of the Year Gabe DeVoe, however finding big men was proving difficult. In fact, it was beginning to create a hole on the roster.
This is a tremendous get for Clemson, and that can't be emphasized enough. Hopefully Coach Winiecki's exemplary job developing bigs played a role in Robertin's decision. He had offers from Oklahoma State and Pittsburgh, but chose Brad Brownell's Clemson Tigers instead. That feels like a huge win.
